BBB: Day 68: It's been a month?

Friday, September 24, 2010

Well... apparently time flies, when you are distracted.

I finished my internal medicine month and it was a pretty busy month working 14 hour days 6 days/week. Today was my last day... and I move on to another busy and EXCITING (I'm claiming it!) month = Child Psychiatry. p.s. ~ 7 months til I'm a DR!!! :-)

My weight has not really decreased much but I have been working out steadily and even counting calories and eating better foods. So now, I have to be patient and KEEP making the right choices. I am going through my habits with a fine tooth comb... and trying to find ways to make each step better!

I WILL REACH MY GOALS. AND ... I WILL be much closer to the final goal by the time 2011 rolls in.

Focus now, celebrate later.

I need results. I want results.... and I'm going to get them.

    First of all, Congrats on being only 7 months away from being a DR!!! Girl, that is A-W-E-S-O-M-E!! I've been meaning to ask you what area of medicine are you going into? My daughter wants to be a physician at a Children's Hospital. She said she wants to work in the ER, but of course that could change over time:-)
And second, your positive attitude is contagious!
Keep it up. You can't help but get results!

BBB: Day 37: I'm doing this for HER

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

You spread beauty where ever you go and believing in yourself allows others to believe in themselves. - gonabfit

I am doing this for Her

The 19 year old me. 138 lbs. Too embarrassed to actually wear this bathing suit in public! I was in HAWAII! and I did end up wearing a bathing suit in public, but not this one because I thought my stomach and thighs were too big.

For HER

the runner in me 8.24.10 - Just ran 5 miles... nothing like a good sweat to clear your mind

For HER

the young girl who was teased for being fat. Though looking back, I wasn't.

and For HER...

the me who KNEW nothing could stop me if I tried... and felt free to be. Before I was taught by the world, that it was NOT ok to be different. before I wasn't enough.


I'm doing this for the HER in me. The one who was too afraid to accept the curvy shape I was given at a young age, too insecure to truly be who I am, the one who longed to be the PRETTY one, the one who wanted so badly to be thought attractive and accepted, who wanted to be healthy, who wanted to be loved. To the HER who never felt like ENOUGH.

WELL, to HER I say, you are loved. You were loved before you knew what love was. You are LOVED despite your thighs, your hips, your stomach-that is not completely flat OR a 6-pack. You are LOVED because you are beautiful. and the sooner you believe it, the sooner you can thrive in this journey called LIFE... because truly it does not matter what others think of you. I will tell HER that they are fighting their own battles, and even if they say hurtful things, it stems from their insecurities and weakness, not yours! Happy people don't go around hurting others. So send them a prayer and HOLD YOUR head UP. If I can do it for HER, I can do it for me.

Looking at the 19 year old Hawaiian me, I just think... It is soo sad that even then I felt self-conscious about my weight... that's how I know this is more of a self-healing journey than a weight loss thing. I was beautiful... and I SHOULD have flaunted every bit of the beautiful body I was given.... and even looking at the pictures of myself now, I know I am not satisfied but I DO NOT LOOK THAT BAD. I am going to APPRECIATE where I AM NOW, while I strive to improve myself... because tomorrow is not promised. And each day is a chance to enjoy ALL that I am. Now. at this moment.


why are YOU doing this? emoticon emoticon

    You speak my truth. I am also her. I have lived in shame of my body and a size six because i was a little thicker in the but and legs. Now with three kids and the same body i am finally becoming grateful for what God has blessed me with.
Thank you for that I needed it.
just beautiful!!!! keep up the good work, i know your inner struggle.

    This was such a beautiful blog. In some ways I felt like you were talking to me. I have photos of myself when I was thin and even at that time I felt fat and not very pretty. You are very right though, this is more than a weight loss journey this is a self- healing and self discovery for myself. Thanks for helping me to realize that

Day 35: I SAID NO!

Sunday, August 22, 2010

I decided to separate this part of my last post... here it is.

(Today was a really good eating day. I had fruit with breakfast. Fruit for a snack. and veggies with lunch. then veggies with dinner plus a baked apple.)

the surprising part is that my fiance and I were going on a study break date to the movies , and at the last minute couldn't go watch it. To cheer me up he offered to take me to my favorite pizza place. (hmmm.... I never thought I was an emotional eater... lol, but at that moment I KNEW I would feel better if I could get the pizza... and yet) I TURNED down pizza at my favorite pizza place because I didn't want to need that to feel better.

then, on a mission to find something else for us to do, and make me happy, he takes me on a ride... and then pulls over. When I ask where we are, he says I'm taking you to cold stone!! and AGAIN I turned him down! and AGAIN I WANTED cold stone too. I mean, it tastes goooood. I like it. But at that moment I realized that the happiness I'm chasing is NOT in a container or grease filled pizza box. the happiness I want, will come from resisting things I know I don't need on a regular basis.

And while I appreciated my fiance for trying to make me feel better. it made me feel bad(because I REALLY wanted it LOL and I felt empty saying no)
... Have I been sending him signs that food will make me happy if I'm disappointed? I'm going to improve on that. And since I probably have been sending those signs, I'm going to work on SAYING NO!!!

Oh and then the weirder part is after I said NO to the pizza and the cold stone - I felt like I just wanted to say turn around and let's eat that food! lol...

but I didn't!

so there. now I'm safe back at home, with my baked chicken and baked apple. safe to fight another day.

    It's very hard to turn down your favorite things and you should be proud of yourself for standing your ground and realizing you don't need food to be happy. I'm working on being that strong to walk away from the junk that calls my name...it's hard but with time it wont even be a second thought.

    It's never easy, but you did good to turn down the food you didn't need. I'll bet you confused the boy friend! You should have seen my husband the first time I went to Fuddrucker's and didn't get the strawberry shake.
